Realme X2 has been formally launched in China days after being a part of various teasers. The new Realme phone, which isn't a successor to the Realme X but a new variant of the Realme XT that was launched in India earlier this month, sports a quad camera setup at the back that houses a 64-megapixel primary sensor. The Realme X2 also flaunts a full-HD+ Super AMOLED display that includes an in-display fingerprint sensor. Further, the smartphone is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G SoC, which is specifically designed to deliver enhanced gaming experiences. The Realme X2 additionally includes VOOC 4.0 Flash Charge technology that is claimed to enable a faster charging experience than the VOOC 3.0 technology featured on the Realme XT.

Realme X2 price

The Realme X2 price in China starts at CNY 1,599 (roughly Rs. 15,900) for the base 6GB RAM + 64GB storage variant. There is also the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage option that carries a price tag of CNY 1,899 (roughly Rs. 18,900).

September 2019 is going to be a busy month for OnePlus and its fans. Officially, the brand will launch its first smart TV, known as the OnePlus TV, sometime in this month. While the OnePlus TV is expected to be a game-changer in the smart TV space, the mid-life update to the OnePlus 7 series is also expected to come out along with the OnePlus TV. Keeping the rumours in mind, the OnePlus 7T is going to get a drastic upgrade whereas the OnePlus 7T Pro will get minor refinements. And it seems that the OnePlus 7T series is coming pretty soon, given that there are hints of some of the new stuff in the current open beta build of Oxygen OS.
Earlier this morning, OnePlus released the Android 10 open beta build for the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro. The Android 10 update brings some new features focusing on enhancing privacy and security along with a couple of cosmetic changes to Oxygen OS. And luckily for OnePlus fans, one of those cosmetic changes has given out some hint about the OnePlus 7T Pro.
While playing around with the Android 10 open beta build on the OnePlus 7 Pro, we stumbled upon the new customisation options for the Horizon light. To recall, the Horizon light is a special effect on the Ambient Display on OnePlus 7 Pro that highlights notifications by lighting up the edges of the screen. With the Android 10 update, OnePlus has now added three new colour effects for the Horizon light in Oxygen OS.
The four colour options in the Horizon light hint at the expected colour variants of the OnePlus 7T Pro. The standard blue colour is available as default but a gold colour option has also been added, which complements the Almond colour variant of the OnePlus 7 Pro. Apart from these two colours, two new colours have been added, suggesting that OnePlus 7T Pro could come in these two colours as well. One of them is red whereas the other one is violet.
This hints at the possibility that the OnePlus 7T Pro may come in four colours - Almond, Nebula Blue, Red and Violet. The Red variant could be similar to the Red on OnePlus 7 but OnePlus could be adding a gradient to justify the premium pricing of this phone. The Violet could also be a gradient colour.
At the moment, these are only speculations but given that the possible launch date is nearing, these could be the colours we may the OnePlus 7T Pro flaunting. Leaks and rumours suggest the OnePlus 7T Pro will have an identical form factor to the OnePlus 7 Pro but get the updated Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset and improved camera performance.
